Forget hunting for gifts on Christmas Eve or praying your online order actually does arrive on time, why not get ahead of the game with some inspiration below from OSRAM?

Stabilant 22 could be an answer to get you out of trouble – not only with your kitcar – when multi-pin connectors and stroppy electrics cause you grief.

The product is an electronic contact enhancer (liquid semi-conductor) that improves (and even restores in some cases) conductivity, reliability and performance of car electronics and gives the effect of a soldered joint even when you haven’t got an actual bond.

We’ll be putting the product fully through its paces very soon but I will say More >
